a shot at the middle class. most of america would rather pay taxes than they would drawing an unemployment check. that's what we operate under, that assumption, and we need as part of this taxing the wealthy to pay a little bit more and some reasonable balanced cuts, but more of a 1:1 ratio rather than what republicans want to do. you need a jobs component, too. >> this comes down to negotiations, and from what is reported about what the president told the basers in that meeting today, doesn't that send a real hard line message to mitch mcconnell, and that's what's lacking in all of this? >> i think mitch mcconnell is a little worried. you saw some of these people on election night. you saw karl rove's response. you saw mcconnell the next day. you saw speaker boehner, who is the most -- i think the most flexible of the group. they know that they're going to have to come to the table and give on a lot of things. not just that we won the election, but when i see the organizing around the president's message. he'll travel the country and talk to people, and the country is over
